United Nations - International Day of the Girl Child (October 11, 2016)


On the occasion of International Day of the Girl Child organized by the UN, France reaffirms its commitment to defending the fundamental rights of girls and to combating forced and early marriages.

We are mobilized at the national level and within the multilateral forums to put an end to all forms of gender-based violence and to combat the inequalities that remain between girls and boys in terms of access to education, nutrition, legal rights and medical care.
